Reader's Pick Sew Along - Vote for the Pattern!



Thank you to those who submitted ideas on patterns you would like to see in a sew-along! I have selected 6 patterns, most all your selection. If you did not give me a specific pattern, but an idea such as a blazer, I selected a pattern. I loved all of the independent pattern company selections you chose, but some of them already have sew-alongs for them either done by the designer or by others. I also decided to stick with patterns that are easy to find for most and ones that have not been used by too many others in a sew-along. 

Now it is your chance to vote for the pattern you want to see in a sew-along. You will have until Friday, March 21st to select the pattern you would like to see in a sew-along. 

Here are the patterns to choose from:










I can't wait to see what you choose! This is definitely going to be fun for me because right now it is a total mystery!!

  5. I say 6097 because I attempted it once and I screwed something up at the back waist (thank goodness it was a muslin)...would love to try it again with some of the gorgeous knits I have purchased from you all recently. :)

  6. Should we submit more than one vote if there are multiple patterns we're equally interested in?

    1. One vote please. (But I know that if you use more than one device to open the survey, you are able to vote more than once!)

  7. I voted for #1 because I tried sewing pants with a pattern from the book Sew U a couple years ago, but I had problems with the fly and waistband.

  9. Such great choices ! My vote goes to New Look 6097 because a quick google search showed me that feedback was good, but most importantly it looks incredibly flattering on all people that sewed it. My second vote goes to the knit blazer!

Made by a Fabricista: Spring is for Shirtdress

I love shirt dresses! My pattern collection reflects this (I may or may not have eight shirt dress patterns) but somehow my closet does not. I have just two DIY shirt dresses (Mimi G's Katie dress and Simplicity 8546) and maybe two RTW versions. So it's high time that I added some to my wardrobe.


This polyester blouse weight twill by Milly has the perfect weight and drape for a relaxed shirt dress. If you prefer a more structured look, stick to a cotton shirting or light weight sateen. I loved this fabric and print so much that I grabbed both colorways. Unfortunately this fabric is sold out, but you can browse other shirtings and blouse weight fabrics here.


This fabric has a somewhat slinky feel, but isn't truly slippery. There's also a slight sheen without being shiny like a satin. It was easy to cut and sew, but I did get a few snags when pinning so make sure you use sharp pins and a fresh machine needle. I serged my pieces before assembling the pattern because as m…

Fabricista Guest Post: "Julie's Picks" Goes to the Opera

Hello, fellow fabric enthusiasts and sewers alike ! My name is Mary Martha and I am thrilled to be presenting a guest post for Fabric Mart's Fabricista blog. As a bit of background, I fell madly in love with opera in 2015 when I attended my first performance in a movie theater as part of the Metropolitan Opera's "Live in HD" simulcasts, which projects live staged operas in New York City into cinemas worldwide via satellite. (They're fantastic !) Since the start, I have dressed the part of the characters when attending these performances, beginning with outfits fashioned from scarves and skirts in my mother's closet to more ornate costumes. It was during this time that I taught myself to sew using a sewing machine and I haven't looked back ─ my life was changed forever !
In December 2018, I subscribed to Julie's Picks swatch club as an educational experience: I wanted to expand my knowledge of different fabrics besides the typical polyester satins I h…
